Elton and his ex-wife have resolved a legal dispute which was triggered by the entertainer's autobiography and biopic.
Renate Blauel sued Elton in June, claiming he broke the terms of their divorce deal by discussing their four-year marriage, which ended in 1988. She initially requested an injunction to prevent future disclosures, as well as damages of around 3 million pounds.
The case has now been settled amicably, says a spokesman for Elton.
A joint statement on behalf of the former couple said: ''The parties are happy to announce that they have resolved this case, in a way that acknowledges Renate's need for privacy.
''For her part, Renate acknowledges that Elton has acted in a dignified and respectful way towards her in the last 30 years and has always been happy to help her.
''They will not be discussing each other, or their marriage, in future and will be making no further comment about the case.''
